I visited the one located in Chambersburg PA many times as I have family that lives in the area. The restaurant is clean, moderately priced, and serves great food in large portions. You will not walk away from a Perkins Restaurant hungry.
The restaurant offers a diverse menu that is moderately priced. They serve breakfast (all day), lunch, and dinner. My favorite item is the BBQ Tangler Burger. It’s made with Angus beef, sweet BBQ sauce, Cheddar cheese, Applewood smoked bacon, crunchy fried onions, lettuce, tomato, sweet red onions, and pickles on a warm brioche bun and served with fries.
Perkins Restaurant offers everything from pancakes and omelets to chicken pot pie, burgers, and a variety of sandwiches, soups, and salads. The Fit Favorites selections are a great choice for those who enjoy eating on the healthier side.
Perkins Bakery offers a variety of fresh-baked pies, muffins, and cookies at the counter. I usually pick up a pie on my way out the door, they are that good. I also have bought Perkins Gift Cards to put inside Birthday and Christmas cards.
